Court Mandated Animal Cruelty Education Class – ACE

Humane Society of Southern Arizona logo

The Animal Cruelty Education Program is a cooperative effort between The Humane Society of Southern Arizona and member organizations with the Animal Cruelty Taskforce of Southern Arizona. The program’s purpose is to provide adults with the educational background, access to services and day-to-day skills needed to make them better pet owners .

Participants in the program have all received citations or have been adjudicated of violations relating to the care and treatment of their or other animals, or have been referred to the program by the Pima County Justice Courts, Tucson City Courts, behavioral health care providers or other agencies. The program is not a court of law concerned with the determination of guilt or innocence, but an opportunity to learn the needs and problems confronting the animals that share our homes and lives.
The 90-minute educational class is held from 10-11:30 a.m. at the Humane Society of Southern Arizona.
All participants must be registered two days before they attend class. The $75 class fee is non-refundable upon registration for the class. Upon payment and attendance of the scheduled class, participants will receive a certificate of completion to present to the prosecutor.
For questions or more information, contact Stephanie Gary at sgary@hssaz.org or (520) 321-3704, Ext. 125.
